Our Autumn 2016 re-development at Chrsitchurch started in August as we started to strip out the electrics. The most visibile start was in September when we installed this 9m * 3m marquee in the middle of the church so that all of our routine activities (Cornerstone, Open Night, Craft Events & Services) could continue whilst we removed and rebuild the entire North Aisle.

There was no insulation in the walls - but the ceiling had been packed with fibreglass when it was replaced a decade ago.

 The last job before Geoff (the builder) arrived to start the demolision was to put up the security fence and "marquee sheeting" that would be our only North Wall for the next few weeks.
